of thoughtfulness that needs to happen, rather than arbitrary cuts. host: a lot more stories about your largest city, detroit, and its economic issues. what is the future of that city? guest: detroit has many great things going on, young people moving in, some great projects going on. the challenge in detroit is city government. it is not a recent issue. there are good people in the recent administration. this goes back for decades. the city government is unsustainable in terms of its finances. it needs to provide better services. we have had a review team looking at the finances. one of the question it asks is, do we need to take additional steps to get detroit's finances together? -- working better? oddly partner with the city to get that happening? detroit will be a great city again. that is critically important for the future of michigan. caller: what is happening in detroit is disgraceful. look. you run for office. you get in, you get that power, and all good ideas run out of your mind. it seems like all of the government, including state, is bought and sold to the highest bidder. you start off
of the very practices under shaken by the city units that you once operated. for example, as treasury secretary he would be responsible for coordinating implementation of the so-called looker rules, which is intended to separate proprietary trading from the federally insured financial activities. you stated that you support the rule, and yet you were the chief operating officer for the units engaged in the sort of the activities the rule was meant to prevent. therefore if you were to be confirmed it could lead to an awkward situation in which your role as the chair of the fsoc from tester of the fsoc coming to effectively saying to the financial firms do as i say, not as i did. now these are not trivial matters. indeed, they bear directly on your qualifications to serve as the next treasury secretary. if the committee was given time to examine the record more thoroughly before today's hearing, i'm sure many of the questions that have already been answered. we have to explore some of these matters here today. finally, i just want to mention that when we met the nomination i told you th

johnson air force base, cherry point, u.s. coast guard air station, elizabeth city, and others will not be ready to defend and serve our country at a moment's notice if we allow this to happen. in my state alone, cuts to the department of defense budget will result in 22,000 civilian d.o.d. staff being furloughed, reducing the gross pay by $117 million. base operation funding would be cut by $136 million, severely reducing military readiness, putting our country at peril. in closing, mr. speaker, i implore my colleagues to work together to prevent the impending sequestration so that we may prevent devastating cuts to our vital infrastructure. we are slowly but surely building our economic recovery and our nation can literally, literally not afford to be knocked down again by an inability to compromise. please, let's get it done. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from north carolina yields back. the chair now recognizes the gentleman from arkansas, mr. cotton, for five minutes. mr. cotton: i ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pr
